Thank you all so much for manning the flag line today at the interment of my father Merrill Neubert. I have stood the line a few times in the past, but it is much different when the line is present for your family member. The sacrifices that you all made on such short notice hasn't gone unnoticed and there aren't enough words in our language to express the gratitude that we owe you all for this wonderful thing that you do.
My only regret today is that I wasn't able to personally thank each one of you and recognize you for the time and respect that you give to others to help them through the day.
I pray that God will give you all his blessing and protect each of you for all of your days
